you vote for four years ago? >> i voted for obama. >> what are you going to do now? >> and i tell you what i'm a republican. i've been a republican 50 years. >> one hour east of the city dominated by liberal politics there's conversation going similar to that in battleground states. >> obama is reelected at the end of the next four year we'll be so far in debt they'll be taking half of our product to pay the debt. >> reporter: the economy and the way its shaped is quite critical but it does not mean that they don't have an opinion about what is happening overseas. >> you have osama bin laden though, right. >> well, so what. i mean so he got osama bin laden. >> it's not easy, it's not easy you see what's going on in the middle east. that transition is going to take decades. but we've started it. >> reporter: they are seven men from which we polled. how many of you are going to vote for romney? >> reporter: three raised their hands for romney, three for obama and one undecided. >> to me that's what makes this country. >> reporter: a country that allows its people to vote for its leader
at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well
and childbirth. under obama care there will be 30 million people without essential health care by the year 2022. and during the bush and the obama years our constitution has been shredded while the impeerl presidency -- the imperial presidency expanded. the presidents that think they can take us to war on a pack of lies. with presidents that think federal government should have the authority to round anyone up, including u.s. citizens, and imprison them without charges, without trial, without legal representation, and without the right ofwe do '. habeous corpus. and our elected officials are sound asleep when the pentagon is warning that climate change is a greater long-term security risk to the united states than terrorism. so if you like the way things are going, vote democratic or republican. if you want real change, vote your conscience, vote justice. economic justice, social justice, environmental justice. [cheers and applause] >> back to our opening statement from virgil goode. >> thank you, larry. i want to say thank you jill, gary, and rocky for being here. on the four issues i will add
, that is really -- it's absolutely grossly unfair. president obama's budget last year, $900 million is what he suggested cutting. nobody in washington could look at the program and say that it couldn't be improved upon. that is what governor romney said. governor, who knows a little something about the state/federal relationship. knows what it means to work with the federal government hind the red tape, which is what president obama called for cutting is a problem. not a program that couldn't be improved on. >> bob: that' romney said shuttr fema. >> dana: that doesn't mean he wouldn't help people. that's grossly unfair. >> eric: we'll take a fema victory lap? >> bob: sure. >> eric: want to do that? >> bob: sure. >> dana: wait four days when they don't have power. >> eric: put your money where your mouthsy. told the story earlier, the house down there probably going to be wiped out, she said what about insurance? only way to get flood insurance along the coast is if you go to the federal program. private insurance companies won't sell it to you. i never did it, because i'm against people using
is planning to do. obama has had nearly four years and we don't need four more years of the same. romney needs a chance to turn the u.s. around and i believe he is genuine. thank you. host: the next caller from new york on the democratic line. caller: thanks for taking my call. that last call was interesting to me because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because h
at president obama inauguration says he believes all white people are going tohill. 91-year-old reverend joseph laurie told a group of obama supporters in georgia he is frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out of the election. monroe county reporter writes "laurie said when he was a young militant he used to say all white folks were going to hell. then he mellowed and just said most of them were. now he said he is back to where he was." laurie attacked those black georgians who did not vote in the 2008 election. and criticized the national anthem as too militaristic. lowery is expected to give a news conference on the topic on friday. >>> who women in dominican republic claim new jersey democratic senator menendez paid them for sex. they told the "daily caller" senator agreed to pay them $500 apiece and only paid them $100. menendez tells geraldo rivera that story is false, absolutely false and contrived. finally, if you have noticed, a lot more jokes about romney than president obama on late night tv, now there are numbers to back you up. new study finds governor romney was
. >> there is no question in my view, we can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chance is five more day, five more days, that's our chant. let me ask you a question. can anybody name our current secretary of commerce? you know why? we don't have one. it's been vacant four months and the president hasn't proposed to put somebody in the job. we need another president! >> in the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all of his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after the past four years. and he's offering them up as change. >> here's my last question: are you ready for this? are you fired up? are you ready to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of t
back on the agenda. >>> i know the obama folks are chanting four more years but our cannot is this: five more days. >> reporter: as you mentioned earlier, the death totally does unfortunately continue to rise, right now, at least 157 people have died from this storm in both the caribbean and the united states. now tonight, there are still more than 3 million people without power on the east coast. kasia? >> wells fargo bank is saying that they're waving late fees for those affected by hurricane sandy. and it donates a million dollars for help with relief efforts. they can make donations to -- the bay area -- to help victims of the storm, some left this morning from january. >> say meneta airport. more than 60 volunteers deployed from the east coast. the american red cross is saying that they're helping storm victims, blood donations are up 25%. another top peen states official now faces charges linked to the childhood sexual abuse scandal. graham spanner was charged today with conspiracy, and -- prosecutors say, he and two others deliberately gave false testimony to a grand jury.
americans for prosperity, they want to show how different things were four years ago before president obama took office. it will take place at 4 until 6:00 this evening at the hess station on east doppler road. >> did you go sign on to a student loan so your child can attend college. many families are now finding that the backing of that loan can be quite costly. you see the tough job market, many parents and grandparents are left with the debt and are facing debt collectors. last year more than 90% of private loans had to have a cosigner. >>> high school graduation rates went up in maryland last year. that's according to data from the state department of education. it happened that 83% of those whschool. that was in 2007 and 2008, graduating in 2011. the report also says that the dropout rate in the state fell slightly from 12% to 11%. >> time now for a check on your weather. we're going to send it over to meteorologist lynette charles. i know a lot of people are hoping for a sigh of relief. it would be nice to see dry weather. >> we're starting to improve conditions, and kids going back t
they talk to and probably you, too. do you want a glimpse of what four more years of obama will look like? earlier this week the president released a pamp let. what to expect if he were to win. he touts economic patriotism. that is a phrase he's used on the campaign trail for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there is no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our
that obama has had his four years, it's time for new leadership. they're both making that case and it's really about getting those voters who have made up their minds or who are really close to voting for one or the other out to the polls. >> what about the undecideds? we keep hearing about the undecide undecideds? is there a particular populace there in ohio? >> it's about 1%. >> so the northern part of that state is one that would traditionally vote more republican. it seems as though according to some of your polling and some of the articles that that is the portion of the state that is leaning toward romney. but that's also the portion of the state that's heavy on manufacturing of ships and cars, especially since obama has been getting a lot of credit for helping to save the u.s. auto industry. that doesn't seem to make sense. >> right. well, actually, the northern part, especially the northeastern part is traditionally democratic. the northwestern part has been democratic, but if you move away from toledo, it gets to be a little less. so it's consistently, really, especially nort
a pragmatic approach to it. i think he succeeded. obama made his points i thought a little too aggressively and in a hospital still man year did he glare at him. >> i don't know i would call it a glare but it certainly wasn't a friendly look. >> do you think he was trying to disarm romney with the intense it of that glare? >> trying to provoke him john. trying to provoke and push and prod romney to come off as reckless. but the president hurt himself in this sense. he is depreciating the two assets he has, the presidency, the head of state and the like ability thing. he probably won on points but he is now down at the same level. >> he had some great lines that make him more likable to his base, and he had to fight. every focus group. >> the battleship. >> that was a great line a. every focus group you watch people worry he doesn't have enough backbone, he is not tough enough. he had to show that, especially after that debate. secondly, why didn't governor romney prosecute the case on benghazi? pat and everybody else has been full saying it for the last two weeks. he wisely stayed away from
for the clinton years, through the bush years and through the obama years. so for 11 years i was there. my role was to detect and deter a waste, fraud, and abuse and improve the economy and efficiency of the agency. i believe very strongly, and we believe strongly that it was important for the citizens to know what their government was doing, and that's not only in the law enforcement context but in the intelligence area as well and we did a number of very sensitive reviews and intelligence matters ranging from the review of the robert hansen case that the fbi, why was it that robert hanson could be a spy and the fbi's mr. several decades without them finding out. when it initially came out the fbi said, well, it's because of his widely trade craft. the new tax politics system. rasta look at it and determine that was not true. they have a lax internal security methods and that he needed improvement. not only do we do that report from, but we also made public the findings of that report. a lot of people said how can you do that? a very sensitive area. top-secret. but the push very hard to make a
the clinton years and the pushers and the obama years. for 11 years i was there. and our role was to detect and deter waste, fraud and abuse, and improve the economy and efficiency of the agency. our role was also to promote transparency in what the agency did. i believe strongly in we believe strongly that it was important for the citizens to know what their government was doing. that is not only in the context, but in the intelligence area as well. we did a number of very sensitive reviews in intelligence matters ranging from review of the robert hanssen case, why wasn't the robert hanssen did not spy for several decades without them finding out when they initially came out. the fbi said that it was because of his tradecraft inhabits eclecticism and we were asked to look at it and determined that that was not true, that they had a lax internal security method and they need to do it through. not only did we do that before, but we also made public the findings of that report. a lot of people say, how can you do this? this is a sensitive area. the top-secret area. but we pushed very hard to
relationship between chris christie who has spent the last year burying president obama, now side by side with the president in new jersey. we know why. it is because there's been a devastating side effects from sandy there. one of the worst probably in the whole of america. what do you make of this? do you buy it or is there a political reasoning behind what is going on? >> personally i'm not a cynic. i think it looked -- i think governor christie and president obama both look sincere and concerned. >> are you skeptical there is more political motive behind it? it is right to ask the question. >> of course it is okay to ask because it is shocking to see governor christie over and over and over again on show after show after show heighten his love each time he went on a different show for president obama. >> if you are mitt romney, there's your right hand guy. the guy who was the first to support you, who's been hammering obama on your behalf all year suddenly looking like his best friend. whichever you way you dress this up, this cannot help mitt romney, can it? >> no. the cynic would sa
to obama, but i think among the sliver of people who, you know, probably voted for obama four years ago and are not sure now, i think this could help. >> how many do you think there are? >> standing next to chris christie helps. >> -- in cincinnati or waukesha, wisconsin -- >> it helps with the media though. it helps with our point of view. let me ask you, everybody goes by the polls and they tend to be 47/47 which means six people haven't made up their mind. i'm asking you as a pro. aren't there a lot of people who are more like the group you described, voted for obama once, worried about him this time, may go with the other guy if he has a good night. can they come back from the first debate saying i'm back where i was? how many of them are there potentially? >> i think there are some out there. but the question is how many of them have early voted? the proliferation of early voting, there were some voting after the first debate, between the second and third debate. i think there are some of those who are not sure and have been looking for a sign. if you haven't voted sort of right aw
administration. certainly, we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact of the matter is the economy has not improved to the degree we have averaged 8% over and the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. good continue to look for change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again while also addressing the tremendous debt that this country has. $16 trillion in debt increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of obama, the national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is a horrible thing to give to our children, our grandchildren and great- grandchildren. we just cannot keep going with these tax policies. host: one last call for you on the independent line from michigan. victoria, you are wrong with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: i wanted to make a clarification for a caller that called in earlier that had a question about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. and not being made clear enough, i feel, to
seniors. five reasons we can't afford four more years of barack obama. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> this is the xfinity sports desk brut to yought to you by x. >> final tune up tonight before the season begins for the griz. >> i will say probably should just bypass the east coast. straight to san antonio for their opening game, don't you sni right, if they're smart. washington wizards open up the new year on tuesday. who is going to be the starting five? we still don't know. we have a better idea after watching tonight's preseason finale. i going for the third win in a row. did you hear about this? splashing it in. 11 of the first 13 wizards poin points. wiz up 3 at the half. to crawford, he jams it home. wizards take a one-point lead. but too much spurs down the stretch. steven jackson knocks the ball from chris singleton. going the other way. jackson on the other end. he wi he will fin wish authority. he was held scoreless. 0 for 6 from the field. lucky, this one did not count. redskins might be missing their defensive captain sunday. london fletcher who has been
described what he see as how sitting president barack obama, during his four years, has conducted himself overseas. >> then the president began what i have called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they looked at that and saw a weakness. >> wait a minute, says president obama. that is bs. >> nothing governor romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing. this has been probably the biggest whopper that has been told during the course of this campaign. >> on arabic tv you said america had been dismiss i have and dericesive. you said america has dictated other nations. mr. president we have not dictated to other nations we have freed other nations from dictators. > >> who was more pug gnashes, romney or obama? >> i don't know but i thought romney won that little exchange. he came across a lot better than the president did. >> i beg to differ. this business of the apology tour is a big lie that romney has been promoting. he titled his book to that. every fact checker that looks, i know you laugh at the fact c
's earned. real change is not measured in words. real change is measured in achiefments and four years ago candidate obama promised so very much but he's fallen. >> reporter: as for the president he argues it comes down to trust. >> you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. you know i will fight for your families every single day. you know that. >> reporter: as if there wasn't enough political news out there today there's this brand-new cnn/orc that shows president obama has a slight lead over mitt romney so it's a dead heat there. >> thank you for that report. >> four square is trying to do its part to get people to vote. it's launched a new app called "i voted." app users must have a primary four square account to use this service. >>> all right. i'm wyatt everhart. we continue to watch the clouds streaming in out of the north and west. mostly cloudy skies. our view from charm city one. how about mt. airy. mostly cloudy most of the day, but some breaks of sun, giving you the idea that sandy is sta
campaign. >> we really can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the-- the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chant is this-- five more days. >> reporter: at a hal nevirginia, a campaign cheer was also a reminder of how little time is left. >> five more days! five more days! >> reporter: before the hurricane, romney had momentum. the race was in a dead heat, and he was tied or within striking distance in battleground states. but the storm knocked him off the front pages at a crucial time in the race. on monday and tuesday, he canceled reallies, and back on the trail yesterday in florida, he toned down his criticism of the president. today in virginia, romney was back on his economic message with sharp attacks on president obama. >> his campaign and address is all about attacking. we actually have a plan to get this economy going. we're going to put it in place to help the american people. >> reporter: now, before the storm, rom niece actually leading the president on the questions of which candidate would be a stronger leader, and which o
] >> reporter: in new hampshire, president barack obama once again heard the four more years. [ people chanting ] and he too talked about ten more days. >> ten days and you'll be stepping into a voting booth, and making is defining choice about the future of our country. >> reporter: new hampshire is the smallest battleground state with just four electoral votes with the way the race is shaping up, those votes could make a difference. >> new hampshire, i still believe in you. i need you to keep believing in me. >> reporter: with hurricane sandy barreling towards the east coast, both have been forced to change their travel schedules. romney scrapped a sunday trip to virginia. and will instead join running mate ryan in ohio. the president has planned to leave monday for florida. that's been moved up to sunday night to beat the storm. drew levinson, cbs news. >>> here in the bay area the california democratic party kicked off a statewide day of action with a phone bank effort. they're calling voters urging them to vote yes on proposition 30 and no on proposition 32. proposition 30 is governor brow
supports women. i am a 36-year-old, and it did not take over night. president barack obama really cares about this country, and that is why he has my support. the republicans, they are just evil. >> i am cutting you off there. president obama's third campaign rally. we also covered the gop candidate mitt romney. you can see mitt romney on c- span after we take our phone calls. our next call is from our romney supporter from idaho. go ahead. caller: i am supporting romney because i think he is an honest man. he does not criticize obama. he looks for the good in the people trying to help people out. i also support the young man from washington. i agree wholeheartedly, and i think romney is very honest, and he is out for helping the people of the united states, and he loves the country. it seems like every time obama and i did get up there, they sit through nothing but -- obama and joe biden get up there, it is nothing but lies and criticizing the country. >> another call from randall in huntington, west virginia. >> i am for obama because i feel that he comprehends we represent the americ
produced in the seven years before the crash. obama policies are working. and they are working in two weeks. first of all the put a floor of the depression we're coming back. he has got a better plan for the future that is more important. he says to build a modern economy the government and the private sector have to work together. you have to invest. >> president clinton making his case for four more years for president obama with the election four days away. the race is close and florida and it is coming down to florida and ohio to the size of state for mitt romney path to the lead toward a college for the delicate that he needs to be elected president. heavy campaigning over the next four days expected especially in florida and ohio. we will bring more of information from bill clinton's rally for president obama. >> thank you mark. the north is still sticking picking up the pieces after sandy slammed the coastline four days ago. these are some of the latest pictures coming in. at last count about 98 people have been killed in the stung. just in the u.s. alone not including the deaths in
, foreign policy. bad news for president obama because -- >> in the history of presidents of the united states, he's our worst at foreign policy. >> this is a very weak ill-conceived foreign policy. every place you look is failure. >> the jimmy carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are right now. >> the president has communicated weakness. >> jon: weakness in foreign policy! obama is weaker than coolidge in foreign policy! weaker than polk! weaker than president flinchington j. craphispants. (laughter) as you know, the only president in united states history who ever had his wallet stolen by a baby. (laughter) you don't hear as much about old president craphispants. (laughter) but given obama's foreign policy record, this debate is going to be a bloodbath. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do
) >> jon: i think romney's leaning obama! (laughter) apparently romney is one of this year's coveted swing voters. look, how closely did mitt romney align himself with what had, i guess up until last night, been the worst foreign policy ever? listen to these guys duet on syria. >> i believe that assad must go. >> assad has to go. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria. >> for us to get more entangled militarily in syria is a serious step. >> so the right course for us is working through our partners -- >> -- in consultation with our partners -- >> -- to identify responsible parties within syria. >> mobilizing the moderate forces. >> organize them. >> helping the operation organize. >> we need to make sure -- >> making absolutely certain -- >> that they don't have arms -- >> -- arms ? >> the wrong hands. >> to hurt us down the road. (. >> (both together) thank you. (cheers and applause) >> jon: wow, what the hell was that? on foreign policy it appears that all that's left for the presidential race is this one model. i mean, at least we still get our choice of color but it's
're going to repeal obama care. by july this year, the house had voted 32 times to repeal obama care, but the senate was democratic. it's most lickly to be democratic no matter who the president is next time around. some of these savings may not happen. >> well, we have to get some bipartisan cooperation and i think should the democrats control the senate or if they don't, what governor romney will do is what he did in massachusetts. say what's your plan, which is reasonable, and say put your plan on the table. pass a budget for the first time in three years and then we'll sit down and you know, we'll negotiate. >> i wanted to ask you about something today in the "washington post." the nation's top bond investor. he said america needs to cut $1.6 trillion a year. four times the so-called grand bargain. i spoke to him about it today. i said bill, is ha really what you meant? he said romney'slan is a plan to reduce the deficit from some undisclosed plan of tax reform. i believe under both candidates, we will see trillion dollar deficits. either by the sale of treasuries from reserve co
years ago, barack obama came out of chester county up about 20,000 votes. you will certainly see some tightening this time, but you will see the president come out of the five county area will for at least a 600,000 vote margin, which will carry him through the rest of the state. i am looking at montgomery county, and if i may, i could agree that chester county is a bellwether. we have a strong democratic team. i think the president will do well in the southeast. as the chairman and knowledge, the southeast is where it is at. people like mitt romney who are will not play here in the moderate area of pennsylvania. we know how to evaluate candidates and i think people will reject mitt romney and tom smith. host: let's go to derry. caller: i would like the guests to address the catholic vote. someone mentioned the extremism has had some extreme positions on the left. guest: whenever barack obama tells the catholic church that they must can see to what the national government wants them to do with their health care plan, that was a kick in the sand in the face of catholics. catholics in p
obama carried four years ago, as you know, has moved off the table. i think it's a big reason why the safe betting today in both parties is that florida is moving away from obama. the evangelical vote is 44% of the vote in north carolina. that state is now gone. he was the first democrat to carry it in 44 years. romney will carry that next tuesday. in ohio, 30% of the vote. but here's the real key, larry. it's what makes '12 different than '08. four years ago there were 17 million evangelical christians who didn't bother to go the polls. about half because they weren't registered to vote. half were registered but didn't vote. we estimate that 340,000 of those were in ohio, alone. this is a state that obama carried with only 262,000 vote margins. so if they show up, it's going to be a big factor that wasn't there four years ago. >> why is no one else covering this, ralph? you've got hard numbers. first of all, first of all, you're talking about wisconsin and iowa as well as ohio, as well as pennsylvania. i mean, romney, that's landslide territory. what i want to ask you is this. wh
that we really can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years, but our chant is this -- five more days, five more days. that's our chant. [ cheers and applause ] [ chanting ] you know, we're going to have to come up with a better slogan tomorrow, or a different one at least. i know the president's been trying to figure out some way to suggest he's got some new ideas. because with all these people out of work, with 3 million more women in poverty today than when he took officer, with 15 million more people on food stamps than when he took office, he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea last week which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. [ cheers and applause ] i mean, unfortunately what you've seen before your very eyes is a campaign that keeps on shrinking and shrinking and shrinking to smaller things. he's been out talking about
, that was the first objective thing obama has. for four years he has been coddled by the media. i mean i guess he faced sort of a tough opponent with hillary and linton but who is she? she is the wife of an impeached ex-president and that is how she made her name. still, she was better than john mccain. and you know in the hillary obama debate, the questions going question's going to obama were so thoughtful saturday night live did a sketch on it with hillary being asked these incredibly intricate, complicated policy questions and then the moderator asking obama if he would like another pillow. [laughter] and that was a fair summary and the stunning thing of last week's debate was and how poorly obama did. he is as good as he ever was. [applause] if john mccain had been on the stage with him, we would be the ones -- [inaudible] that is how magnificent mitt romney was in was the first time obama had to face a tough opponent, the first time. his whole life he has been, as he says, make any fast moves and he looked home and why people will love you. by his own account he was smoking pot at occidenta
